Availability: In stock
Produced in DOQ Priorat by bodega Domini de la Cartoixa, Formiga de Seda de Clos Galena is made from White Grenache and Viognier grapes sourced from organically farmed vineyards with llicorella (slate) soils.
Each variety was separately harvested and cold macerated for 5 hours on arriving at the cellar. A portion of this Spanish white wine was fermented and aged on lees in stainless steel tanks, and the other went through alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels, after which it was aged for a period of 5 months.
Once both processes were completed, Formiga de Seda 2022 was blended, clarified and bottled.
Pair this organic white wine from Priorat with white meat recipes, semi hard cheeses and pasta recipes,
The white wine Formiga de Seda is pale yellow with a golden rim.
This blend of White Grenache and Viognier is lively and expressive, conveying aromas of passion fruit, pineapples and ripe peaches, with some spicy and mineral undertones.
Lush and creamy, with a citrusy acidity, flavours of tropical fruit and an earthy and mineral bite. This wine from bodega Domini de la Cartoixa has a long finish with a note of cinnamon and vanilla.
